Arriba, abajo y alrededor

Do your children know where carrots come from? How about corn? Whether or not your family grows a garden, there's a lovely little book out by Candlewick Press that is perfect for preschoolers and kindergartners. Completely in Spanish (there is an English version), this lively book introduces the joy of gardening to your child while demonstrating the meaning of the three words in the title. I love that you can use this book not only as a read aloud or for beginning readers, but also as a science text.
Los pimientos crecen hacía arriba.Las papas crecen hacía abajo.Y alrededor, las calabazas se enredan, se enredan y se enredan.  
The watercolor illustrations are fun and happy, engaging for any child. There's a lot to see on every page; your child will have fun finding all the animals in the garden.

But it isn't just for younger students. I'm using it this year as part of my daughter's Spanish curriculum. She's been enjoying going through books in Spanish and learning the words and meanings. Then she uses the vocabulary to create a new story.

So I recommend this great picture book for your Spanish speaker -- or learner!
